The Kirinyaga County Assembly denies rumours flowing on social media alleging that it has passed the Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020, commonly known as the BBI.

Kirinyaga County Assembly Speaker Anthony Waweru, in an announcement published on Wednesday, said the House is currently on recess and will resume entire sittings on February 8, 2021.

The Speaker established that the County Assembly had received the Bill but was yet to consider it.

“The County Assembly of Kirinyaga has not considered the Constitutional amendment Bill 2020, " he said.

 “The County Assembly of Kirinyaga shall in consultation with the people of Kirinyaga and within the confines of the law consider the Constitutional Amendment Bill, " he added.

"The assembly will submit its decisions to the Speaker of the Senate and the Speaker of the National Assembly as guided by section 257(6) of the constitution of Kenya,” he added.
